My World Tuesday - Gardens By The Bay - Cloud Forest

It is nice to have an airconditioned garden right in the heart of Singapore city.

There are two domes in Gardens By The Bay which are air condtioned. Cloud Forest comprised of a 35-metre tall mountain complete with the tallest indoor waterfall covered in lush vegetation, the Cloud Forest portrays plant life from about 2,000-metres above sea level at the top of the mountain to around 1,000-metres at the bottom of the ravine.

Close up view of the extended balcony from the bridge.

Going to the top of the artificial mountain is easy, take the lift to the 7th floor and slowly descend down via a long walkway. The architectural designs of the dome is really amazing and do remember to pause and admire them.

I do have a fear of heights but for the sake of photography I just had to look down and take some photos of the view hahaha.

Skywatch Friday - Gardens By The Bay

The main attraction in Gardens By The Bay must be the two domes.

The two domes looked like giant eggs. I will show the inside of the domes in later posts.

Saw a tree that bears fruits that looked like durians but on closer look, they are not durians. Not sure what trees are they.

The scenery infront of the two domes is beautiful especially with the Singapore Flyer in the background.

Love my new camera, I could zoom at the Singapore Flyer's capsules and able to see the people inside.

Gardens By The Bay - Different Ethnic Gardens

The garden is so huge that it could be difficult to cover every part of the garden. One can choose to use the Garden Cruiser to go round the garden. It is a 24 minute tour ride.

Access to the garden via Marina Bay Sands/Bayfront MRT Station will bring you to the Heritage Gardens a collection of four themed gardens that will take you through the history and culture of Singapore’s three main ethnic groups and colonial past.

Spotted a smiling Benevolent Buddha in the chinese garden.

You can view more photos from the official website of Gardens By the Bay Heritage Garden.

Gardens By The Bay - Dragonfly Lake

The Dragonfly Lake is between Marina Bays Sands and the Supertrees in Gardens By The Bay. You dont have to pay any admission fee to enter the Dragonfly Lake. Be sure to catch dragonflies resting around the lakes.

Seems there's a stream coming down from the top, but I was dead tired to climb up to see what's up there. The garden is so huge, need to come here another time to explore more places in the garden.

Nice to have these huge stones as benches around the lakes.

Best to walk along the boardwalk around the lake in the evening where the weather is cooler.
